International Fundraising Consultant
Liza Baranyai brings over 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, serving as a leader in fundraising and engagement, as well as a consultant. She has worked with well-known organizations like Greenpeace, Amnesty, and Oxfam, among others.
Her expertise primarily revolves around individual fundraising, with a focus on Europe and Southeast Asia, particularly in emerging markets and helping newcomers in established markets.
Liza’s primary area of expertise lies in crafting individual fundraising strategies, devising engagement plans, enhancing the capabilities of fundraisers and volunteer/activist coordinators, providing organizations with development recommendations, conducting program reviews, and guiding internal transformations toward becoming more donor-centric movements rather than service-provider entities.
I had the pleasure of meeting Liza during a multi-session training. Each time, I received numerous tangible tips and ideas from her, along with a fresh perspective on things. She is a kind, patient, insightful, and credible instructor with a wealth of experience.
I highly recommend her to anyone who has questions or tasks related to organizational development and management and is seeking the assistance of a skilled professional.

During much of the quarantine period when we couldn’t carry out our work in person, we dedicated a significant amount of time to organizational development, crafting communication strategies, and refining our fundraising approach.
Liza played an instrumental role throughout this process, providing us with valuable guidance every step of the way. Her expertise was a beacon of light whenever we faced challenges along the journey.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Liza for her invaluable contributions to our collaborative efforts!
